I have a great recipe for puff-puff that my mom shared on this blog, yes she did! Did you miss it? Click HERE to see it! Her puff-puff had pepper and onions-it's a favourite way for me to make puff-puff. I got a lot, I mean A LOT of request to show how you can do puff-puff without touching it so much because some people just don't like hands in their food, I can understand that. In this recipe I share how you can make puff puff with minimal ingredients and without touching it...yes! Still awesome tasting, still round and fabulous! Warning: DO NOT copy my recipe text to your blog or website without my consent! You can share my videos but don't copy my recipe TEXT! Don't take my photos and remove my watermark, I will sue You and you will LOSE ALOT OF MONEY! Wehdone. INGREDIENTS 3 Cups Plain Flour 1 Cup Caster Sugar/Granulated Sugar (Or according to your taste) 4 tsp Instant Yeast Sprinkle of Nutmeg Vegetable Oil Pinch of Salt 2 Cups Warm Water PREPARATION Sift the flour to get rid of any unwanted particles and to loosen it. Add all the dry ingredients together with a spatula. Gradually add warm water and mix together with the dry ingredients. Place the mixture in a warm place i.e your warm oven or warm microwave. Keep it there to rise for about 45 minutes. It will double in size. If it doesn't it means something is wrong with your yeast. I use instant yeast so you don't need to soak in water first just add to flour. Pour vegetable oil in a deep pan and place on medium heat. Now scoop the mixture with your semi rounded measuring spoon (1 tbs scoop) transfer to the pan of oil (See video to see how this is done). Getting perfect round puff-puffs is an art...we can cheat our way through it. Fry batch by batch so that you don't overcrowd the pan. Flip it when it gets brown, until it is a nice golden brown. Transfer from the pan to another bowl to drain the oil! Enjoy! Don't forget to SUBSCRIBE to my Youtube Channel so you can see how to make it!
